Bucklin Rose Old Hill Ranch Sonoma 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Grenache 51%, Syrah 8%, Zin 26%, Carignane 5%, Mourvedre 10% Incredible floral notes, garrigue, Provençal herbs, orange rind and strawberry all come together on the nose. There’s a little fruity roundness and a touch of sweetness on entry followed by good acidity, round and fleshy with spicy Grenache red fruit on the palate then some plums and darker berries on the long finish along with a little candied note, but savory candy. A lovely fruity but not frooty wine that is a touch chewy for a rose. 89pts

Old Hill Ranch is an historic jewel. It was founded by William McPherson Hill in 1851. Our mother and stepfather, Anne and Otto Teller, purchased the vineyard in 1981 and sold grapes to Joel Peterson at Ravenswood Winery for their top tier vineyard designate Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel. Bucklin and Ravenswood are the sole producers of wine from the vineyard. We are a small producer and our annual production is about 2000 cases. We do not have a tasting room but we love to show off our vineyard and wines when time allows. Read less
